Why Are Honeybees Unique?

It’s hard not to recognize bees for being the world's top pollinators when their relationship with plants has been proven to be built to last. Plants are able to reproduce across long distances due to bees, and after 100 years of evolution their job is perfectly due for completion with minimal complication. 

The Honey Bee could be considering a social butterfly, or bee, if you will. Their colony consists of about 35,000 bees who work together in order to keep it alive. The queen, workers, and drones are all crucial parts to keeping order in the hive. 

While many insects and animals communicate with sound, bees actually communicate by dancing! The “waggle” dance, when a bee walks in loops and shakes, is done from one bee to another in order to show how far away certain flowers are.
